Help refreshing the exterior of 1957 brick ranch home?

Hello, we recently purchased this small 1957 ranch home and would like to refresh the exterior. We want to embrace the history of the house, so we're not looking for anything too modern. Some ideas:

1. To paint the brick or not? My husband loves the brick but I think it might look okay with a different color.

2. Update the door to something more interesting like an orange or yellow with a more "MCM"-esque door.

3. We are for sure updating the house numbers

4. The house no longer has the planters or wreath in front but I will be adding some in

5. Should we paint the concrete steps or add in railings?

6. I don't really like the look of mulch - is stone a better option?

Any ideas are appreciated!
